I Know the Truth is the first release on Pastor Shirley Caesar's label Shu-Bel, in association with Artemis Gospel. On her 41st album, Caesar incorporates elements of hip-hop, old-school R&B, tender ballads, and, most importantly, her compelling vocals and spiritually themed lyrics. Among the 12 diverse tracks are the warm, yet gritty, organ/choir combo "Every Day Is Like Mother's Day," (in memory of Caesar's mother), the country-flavored weeper "Jail Bird," and the title cut featuring singer/songwriter Ton?x, who has been referred to as Contemporary Christian Music's version of Prince. With the release of I Know the Truth, it's obviously that Shirley Caesar shows no signs of slowing down. ~ Al Campbell
